Question: If Ted Cruz and John Boehner were both on a sinking ship, who would be saved?
Good joke. As opposed to Boehner, who is a bad joke:
It is now evident that both houses of Congress have the votes to end the shutdown. But, so far, Boehner will not let that come to a vote. If he does, he is afraid the tea party conservatives will strip him of his job.
“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?” the New Testament asks.
Are you kidding me? Have you ever seen Boehner’s suite of offices in the Capitol? It would make Midas blush.
Boehner does not bend to the will of his Kamikaze Caucus because he is an evil man. He does so because he is a weak man. To borrow a line from Theodore Roosevelt, I could carve a better man out of a banana.
Question: What is the difference between the people who shut down the government and the people who have been furloughed?
Answer: The people who have been furloughed actually want to work.
